Attached is a rough draft of what mushrooms I was able to document this season in the park. The cover artwork is by Alexander Viazmensky.

So that's what I miss when I spend all my time in the woods looking up at the treetops.

Devin: Thanks for posting. I am in the early stages of Schroom ID. The pictures are good quality and informative. I will probably be an owner of Bill Roody's book since I am in WV. Any other ID books you can recommend.

Tsharp,
Mushrooms of West Virginia and the Central Appalachians by William Roody is an excellent field guide and seems spot on since you are from that area. I would also recommend Mushrooms of the Southeastern United States by Alan and Arlene Bessette, Roody, and Dail Dunaway. Happy mushroom hunting!
